We will enjoy a leisurely hike along the Deschutes River of about 3.5 miles. From the parking area, we will walk to the Bill Healy Bridge and then to the footbridge crossing the river. From the footbridge, we will continue our hike on the west side of the Deschutes. Weather permitting, there is a beautiful area slightly off the trail where we can relax, take photos, and have a bite to eat. This area is not usually seen because it's under water. Farewell Bend Park at the Old Mill.
Meet near the "flying kayaks" (by the restrooms) behind the Parks and Recreation Building on the corner of Columbia and Shevlin-Hixon. There is parking behind the building and also at the Old Mill dog park.
All of our dogs must be leashed on this popular trail.
